“God allows difficulties because it’s in the difficult that we lean to trust in Him with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding but in all our ways acknowledge Him so that He can direct our paths.” — Julia Bruce
This weeks verse to memorize:
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price: therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Practicing self-care means we are better prepared to use our gifts and callings to help and minister to the people that God places in our paths.
If we neglect our spiritual self, we may not be “tuned in” and sense when the Holy Spirit is directing our paths.
Show me your ways, O Lord; Teach me your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; on you I wait all the day. Psalm 25:4-5
